Chinese food can be LOADED with MSG, saturated fats, sodium, and not to mention, TONS of calories.
Here’s a GREAT alternative that I found coming to you complements of Health-Bent.com. Hope you enjoy it!
Orange & Ginger Chicken…
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into bite size pieces)
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- juice of 2 oranges
- zest from 1 orange
- 1 tsp fresh ginger
- 3 tbsp coconut aminos or wheat-free soy sauce
- 1 tsp chili garlic sauce or sriracha
- 3 green onions, chopped
In a medium size sauce pot, add the orange juice, zest, ginger, coconut aminos and chili garlic sauce or sriracha. Set over medium heat and let simmer to reduce and thicken while the chicken cooks.
In a saute pan, heat 3 T of the fat of your choice, over medium high heat. Add the chopped chicken thighs and cook until a nice brown crust has developed on the chicken pieces, about 6 minutes.
Add the chicken to the sauce pot and stir to coat with the orange sauce.
Serve topped with sliced green onions.
